Subject: NorthShore Suburbs of Chicago
Overly polite kids but that's the way things were in the upper middle class subs like Glencoe, north of Evanston, IL in mid 20th century. Maybe it's me but didn't that house seem to have an awful lot of steps going to the second floor?
And I could swear that that was the same classroom that they filmed Hoppy The Bunny - same clock and door in same place; same filming aspect. Different teacher; bigger kids. Still 2:30.
That might be Hillary Clinton's old neighborhood - or certainly nearby.

Maybe life wouldn't be perfect, but it sure would be better than it is without manners. A common complaint about films like this is that they don't show the world the way it is. It's not supposed to. It's supposed to show an ideal situation in hopes that we can come closer to it. So instead of making fun, how about trying what it says. Maybe it'll improve your part of the world.

People had more manners. People should use this film to train the Obama Generation.

Subject: Minding your Manners - even poor ones
Well the point of the film seems to be to be courteous even when authority figures aren't around to force a correction...
I did, however, notice one faux pas, that was actually mentioned but in error. When Jack & sister leave the haus he lets 'ladies first' go ahead then follows down the steps but in going down the steps of the bus - he preceeds. Actually a gentleman leads downhill in almost all situations ('n case she trips she'll land upon him).
And why was the action so deliberate and un-hurried? 'Cause Jak and the courteous crew left in plenty of time so as to arrive on time rather than be rushing and making mistakes.
Mind Your Manners always 'cause they are always showing... 8-?

Like the film, "Obligations," this naive film gives the rules for an ideal American middle class family life... NO, anger, no problems- everything is perfect in life when you follow the rules and have manners. A nice fantasy.
Subject: Woodruff Redux
In the ever escalating war of the "Dating Do's and Don'ts" kids of who made the most Coronet films? Alan or Woody? Alan tries to even up the score by starring as "Jack" who is just about the most poiite kid you'll meet, staying home and sharing pleasantries with the family while eating breakfast, letting the women get on the bus first, and paying attention in school! Just what universe are we talking about here? Of course Jack is just about the most popular guy in school, and even strangers think so too.. Why, just listen to their convenient voice overs!
